Okay, well here's a spot where people can discuss anything to do with CNNNN/The Chaser Decides/WOE.

For those who have no clue about what I'm on about, I'm here to inform you. The Chaser was formed in 1998, with the construction of a Newspaper, infamous for publishing John Howard's phone number (Karma later struck: Some other newspaper published Julian and Andrew's numbers).

After a few other ventures, a television show was formed on ABCTV, called, CNNNN, a spoof of, obviously, CNN. It was an awesome success, and led to 'The Chaser Decides', in 2004, which focused on the election of the new PM.

On Billie Joe's Birthday, 2006, the first show of 'The Chaser's War on Everything' took to our screens. It prominantly shows the guys...declaring war...on everything! Taking part in stunts and situations which no real sane person would ever involve themselves in. The show is also infamous, for example, current affairs shows have done countless stories on them (well, actually only about 7.), court hearings (Bulldogs incident. Don't ask.), numerous newspaper articles, and even extra security at the LOGIES to make sure they don't do anything...well, stupid.

Here is a clip from the show (series 1), showing one of their most famous stunts: The Trojan Horse.


There are altogether 7 main members of 'The Chaser' (not including the numerous crew members that hold the team together). Julian Morrow, Andrew Hansen, Craig Reucassel, Chris Taylor, Chas Licciardello, Charles Firth (US Correspondant aka. Firth in the USA) and Dom Knight.

The Chaser's War on Everything can be seen on Wednesday nights at 9pm on ABC (Channel 2). The Chaser are currently on their mid-year break, and will be airing new episodes from September 5th, 2007. During the break, The Chaser's War on Repeats will be showing, broadcasting some of the best shows of 2006.
